Publisher's Summary

Sander's move to the country brings surprising changes to his young life. Their new/old Dutch farmhouse has some unusual inhabitants. His parents squabble. His sister, who used to be his ally, abandons him to become an obnoxious teenager. The woods surrounding his new home, however, provide a strange refuge. There, he discovers a fairy world of dwarfs, pirates, wandering ghosts, and a ruthless Lord of Dunderburg Mountain, as an old legend continues to unfold. With the help of a shy dwarf named Alfar and Mini, an Algonquin girl steeped in the lore of the region, Sander embarks on a magical, swashbuckling adventure where only he can tip the balance in a world struggling between good and evil.

Magical coming of age story

TARGET AUDIENCE: Middle Grade to Young Adult

STORY LINE: A delightful, magical coming of age story. I loved how the hero in the story has supportive loving parents and good healthy friends. I loved the character development, and found myself rooting for the characters throughout the book I have already suggested the book to my children to read.

NARRATOR: The author narrated this book. I was not expecting it to be as good as it was. He did an excellent job.

OVERALL: Terrific book. Fans of Harry Potter will love this.
